Anvis moves to new location following Hanh acquisition

Anvis Holding SAS was created as part of a management buyout from Sumitomo Riko
Nievre, France – Antivibration and rubber parts supplier Anvis has moved to a new and smaller production site following its takeover by Hahn GmbH in 2020.
Anvis Holding SAS was created as part of a management buyout from Sumitomo Riko overlooking two locations: Anvis Epinal and Anvis Decize.
With the recent move to its new €20-million site, the size of the Decize’s factory has been more than halved from 25,000 square metres to 11,500 square metres, said Anvis.
The old site, said the French supplier in a statement to ERJ 19 Sept, had become “too large and too energy-intensive”.
While production capacity remains on a par with the old factory, Anvis has improved the environmental features of the Decize plant, as part of an objective to be CO2 neutral by 2025.
The new factory is equipped with heat pumps as opposed to gas heating previously, rooftop photovoltaic panels and a wastewater processing unit, instead of a direct flow into the sewer.
With no jobs impacted as a result of the move, the facility employs 120 people and produces four types of products: antivibration solutions for rail industry; expansion joins for fluid transfer; specific rubber products with Michelin as biggest customer and billiard cushions.
The factory is also working on a number of R&D projects to develop new products, potentially for Trelleborg and Michelin.
With the products, the plant is expected to initially add 10 more jobs and 40 news jobs over long-term.
